Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, because the individual can keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation facility while receiving treatment services. Even though this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation require to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehab programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center that's within their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good program they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.
